He Got Bored With His Backyard Swing So He Tore it Down And Created THIS!

Creativity alert! This man sure knows how to transform a simple backyard to a sanctuary.

Having a sanctuary right in our very homes is such a great idea. Imagine having a place where the family can bond and feel relaxed without having to travel miles or spend lots of cash. We believe that the backyard is the perfect place to revamp for this purpose.

This is why we were so thrilled when we saw this post of a man who turned a simple backyard into a haven for some R&R. Saying that he is creative is an understatement, as we are truly amazed with the finished product!

This was what his backyard looked like before the transformation.

It was boring so he decided to tear everything down and start anew.

He dug up holes, which served as the foundation of the swing poles.

The two long posts were secured in place. Ooooh, exciting!

Dad Redecorates His Kids’ Bedroom and I Can’t Look Away.

Amazing ‘DIY’ room make-over especially made by a father for her two daughters.

What's so cool about 'DIY' is that it comes in handy every time especially at home. Aside from being cost-effective, a certain artistry and personal touch can be found in 'DIY-ing.' Put all those together and voila! You have your very own masterpiece.

The struggle of those people who are on a tight budget with a minimal and crowded space for a house is very common and is not ideal for kids, older people and growing families. Not everyone can afford a big house with separate rooms for clothes, toys and whatnot so 'DIY' really helps.

A 'Garage-mahal-architect-builder, Maker and Do-er' as he describes himself, Adam Hadlock is someone you would wish to have in your own home. In a matter of 3 days, this talented father came up with an amazing surprise for his two daughters by redecorating their room or a 'DIY' room make-over as he put it. The kids' bedroom is now a playroom too with a unique tree house design. It's also spacious enough for the girls to roll over with their toys and stuff. A DIY' hammock to top it all makes it even better and fun....

How To Give Your Staircase A Cool DIY Make-Over in 12 Awesome Steps!

This is a cool DIY project for bookworms out there!

By

I love reading as much as I love writing. I love the feeling of holding a book in my hands, as its spine rests on my palm, and the crisp smell of the paper as I turn each page. Among all the books that I have read, I have a few favorites - some of which I plan on reading again should I have some free time. Since I don't have much time to spare recently, I am okay with looking at the books that are sitting on my bookshelf for now, calmly waiting for me to pick them up.

However, for those bookworms out there who are not satisfied with keeping their books on bookshelves, and who wish to see more of their favorite books, today is your lucky day! Here is a DIY project that can transform your staircase (yes, you read that right) into a huge bookshelf. But you have to be ready to sacrifice your carpet for something more creative and original.
